WMG is a vibrant, cutting-edge research institution at the University of Warwick, hosting one of the seven centres for High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult.
The verification and validation (V&V) team at WMG are undertaking a programme of research and engineering across the verification and validation spectrum. The physical world of mobility and infrastructure are merging with the digital world of simulation, AI, software, and data. With the emergence of evermore complex systems comes evermore complex challenges. Chief among these challenges, that of assuring safety.
The V&V team is recruiting for a Lead Engineer in the area of Data Science. This role will include analyzing data (using methods like cluster analysis, regression, market basket analysis) related to the test scenario generation for automated vehicles and devising suitable methods for improving the data. The role will also include working with various types of data (e.g., accident data, insurance data, sensor data, real-world and simulation data) and extensive use of Python (its data science libraries) and MATLAB. The role is part of a wider team which includes experts in scenario generation, languages and simulation-based testing and this role will involve close cooperation with this wider team.
You will work in collaboration with industry and academic partners. Academic experience will be required along with your well-developed communication and collaboration skills to assist working independently and as part of a team. The ability to be flexible with your work will be an important part of the role. You will also be responsible for project delivery and providing regular updates to your line manager and WMG’s Verification and Validation leadership team.
The V&V team, work from fundamental research, to applied research, the development of policy, standards and regulation, direct commercial research, and professional education offerings. Our programme of work is having a material impact on the creation and application of novel safety assurance methods across emerging technologies: with its foundation in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV’s) and extending across transportation domains (i.e., aviation, land, marine) and novel technologies (i.e., AI). We are proudly enabling a new wave of technological progress by working with partners worldwide.
The V&V group is globally recognised, with the research and engineering teams siting on global standards & regulatory committees as the UK representatives (i.e., ISO TC 204/WG14 and ISO TC22/ SC33/ WG9), being lead author of international standards on self-driving shuttles/ pods, and contributing to many more standards (i.e., ASAM OpenODD, OpenLABEL, BSI 1889 & BSI 1883). Along with having developed the world’s largest public database of test scenarios for CAV’s, Safety Pool™ Scenario Database, and leading on a pillar of the UK Governments pioneering CAM Test Bed programme, Midlands Future Mobility.
We provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
